Central Asia Institute - Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer
Reporting to the Board of Directors of CAI, the Executive Director will provide the leadership and strategic vision essential to maximizing CAIís impact on its fundamental mission of enhancing the human resources of host countries through education and training, especially for girls. An integral component is the outreach to those individuals and groups whose understanding of CAI will result in their participation and contribution to our success.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Financial and Administrative Management: In all matters, ensure compliance with legal and
customary practices and agreements by CAI, its employees and agents, both in the United States and host countries in which we operate. Ensure corporate funds are invested in a manner consistent with Board directives and policy. Maintain corporate records, file required reports, and maintain a professional image of CAI in both appearance and fact. Travel abroad as required to maintain both current and planned programs. Recruit and train personnel as required.
CAIís ability to pursue and sustain its mission is entirely dependent on individual donors, both large and small. The cultivation of these donors is an integral element of the Executive Directorís duties. The Executive Director will recruit a Development Director, yet be actively involved in the development process. The Executive Director will be open to approaches from NGOs pursuing missions similar to CAIís, and shall actively seek out such collaborations.
As chief executive of CAI, the Executive will be responsible for both overseas and domestic
operations and for all of the usual operational details of the corporation, including but not limited to: insurance for all risks such as employee health, D&O Liability; expense control; personnel administration; budget preparation; and strategic planning.
LIAISON WITH CAI BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Executive Director will work with the Board of Directors in the development of a Strategic Plan and provide the vision and direction necessary for optimizing the Boardís support of CAIís mission. The Executive Director will bring to the attention of the Board of Directors any incident or anticipated change of circumstances that may affect CAI, or any other matters that may or possibly be of importance to the Board.
A college degree in a relevant discipline is desirable. Must have excellent management and
communication skills, coupled with international business, military, and/or NGO experience,
preferably in Central Asia countries. Extensive management experience operating in multiple
countries or jurisdictions is mandatory. Nothing in his/her background should negate the ability to get a visa to any of CAIís host countries.
